We like this one article only because we're suckers for a good grass story plus Marg resonates with not only us at Oasis Lawns but probably plenty of frustrated gardeners with her advice i.e. just get out there and weed. Story of our lives most weekends.

Reducing erosion with lawn grass

23 Dec is last orders to get grass at your place in 2014!

Grass reduces soil erosion caused by water and wind.

Grass develops a thick root and shoot system forming a wall that prevents soil erosion. For example with new home construction, sod is laid next to the curb to prevent soil erosion and act as a buffer strip. The strip filters runoff water before it enters the street and storm water drains, which lead to nearby streams and surface waters.

Regular mowing increases shoot density and root mass, improves soil stability, and prevents
water and wind erosion by holding water in place and slowing down the flow. Research
shows that sediment loss from grass is negligible under normal rainfall conditions.

Knowing that established lawns can increase a home’s value by as much as 15 per cent, do you need to get good grass into your garden before the year is out?
